Overview

Central to this collection of papers are new developments in the general theory of localization of spaces. This field has undergone tremendous change of late and is yielding new insight into the mysteries of classical homotopy theory. The present volume comprises the refereed articles submitted at the Conference on Algebraic Topology held in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Spain, in June 1994. Several comprehensive articles on general localization clarify the basic tools and give a report on the state of the art in the subject matter. The text is therefore accessible not only to the professional mathematician but also to the advanced student.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The 29 papers center around recent developments in the general theory of the localization of spaces, which have produced new insights into classical homotopy theory. Among the topics are the nilpotency of subgroups of self-homotopy equivalences, manifolds with highly connected universal covers, the Yagita invariant of general linear groups, a counter-example to a conjecture of Cohen, and isomorphism classes of locally unitary groups. Accessible to advanced students as well as to professional mathematicians. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
